This year was our first year at Annehurst Elementary and we were greatly impressed with the teachers and the abundance of involved parents at the school.

My daughter transferred to Annehurst from attending another school for 4 years, she now love going to school and gets the personalized attention she needs. I believe this is a great school and focuses on learning.

Annehurst Elementary is a woderful school. My boys attended this school since 2003. Mr. Baum is a fantastic principal. He is very visible in the school and is very genuine and caring. The teachers are approachable and understanding. The office secretaries are warm and welcoming. I feel very blessed to have such a school in our community. It has great diversity and depth. Parents are allowed to be very active in their children's education and activities at the school.

I have read the reviews from a few years ago, amd I was very much surprised. All I can say is that Annehurst has been great for my child. She is reading and computing math way above her age level, and has had an awesome experience with all her teachers. The communication between her teachers and myself has been great, and all Staff show an interest in not only my child but all children, and their individual talents are encouraged. I feel she is being well prepared for middle school, and most of all, she is happy learning.

Unfortuntately, their is a lack of discipline in the school over all including some teachers as well as the studnets. It is unfortuante teachers can be too relaxed in their class rooms and setting poor esamples for their students. There is a doulbe standard of expectation. In this school children have urinated on the sidewalks, tripped, filthy language has been on the restroom doors for over 2 years, just to name a few incidents. Due to the increase popluation of the lower income level families busing thier stundets to this elementaey school, the families from the community are faced with these unfotunate and 'out of control' actions from several students.

Annehurst school is an outstanding elementary school. The students are fortunate to have an excellent and caring staff. The principal is very kind, and truly cares about each and every student in the building. I would highly recommend Annehurst to any new family moving to the Westerville area.

Annehurst School is one of the most nurturing environments I have ever seen. The staff gets to know as many of the students as possible and works hard to promote character building as well as academic excellence. The principal truly cares about each of the children and his actions daily show that. I am honored to be a part of this community.

I would highly recommend Annehurst Elementary School. The principal and staff are very caring and compassionate. They promote the highest level of character through an outstanding character education program. The students are offered many opportunities to showcase their work. Students and families are encouraged to take responsibilities in the school and thus have developed a very supportive school family. The principal is very available and very well respected by the school community at large. He recently received the Superintendent's A+ award after being nominated by students, parents, and staff. He promotes nothing but the finest in educational values and makes for a fun learning environment as well. Annehurst is held in high regard by its school community for its values in education and its heritage.

If you want your child to get a good education don't send them to Annehurst!! The principal is lazy and extreamly rude! People are in and out all day long, safety is something this school doesnt practice. Your children will not recieve a good education there trust me.

In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The OAA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
